Millennium Coastal Park

Millennium Coastal Park
Part of the Millennium Coastal Path at Llanelli

The Millennium Coastal Park was originally a project undertaken by Llanelli Borough Council to transform a 20 km stretch of industrial wasteland on the south Carmarthenshire coast in to green parkland. The project was then taken over by Carmarthenshire County Council after the amalgamation of Welsh local authorities and aims to transform the land into a recreational area for the general public. Although many parts of the park have been finished and open to the public for a while, the development of new facilities continues in forms such as the expansion of Burry Port marina and the construction of housing and leisure complexes at Llanelli's North Dock.

The park offers views of the Gower Peninsula on the other side of the Loughor estuary, and features a variety of visitor attractions including the North Dock visitor centre, National Wetlands Centre Wales at Penclacwydd and Sandy Water Park. The Millennium Coastal Path (a stretch of the Celtic Trail cycle route, also known as National Cycle Route 4) runs through the park.

February 2007 storm damage

On the evening of Monday 19 February 2007 a high tide combined with a high storm swell caused severe damage to a section of the path and cycle route near Burry Port. The damage to a 500m section was severe, with complete loss of a 150m section.
